George Brown College in Toronto is celebrating its 50th anniversary during the 2017-2018 academic year, and the organization has a renewed and keen interest in its organizational history. The college has produced a weekly, publicly accessible but staff-focused newsletter for very nearly its entire history. This collection exists in hard-copy only for the years 1967-2013, and must be digitized for preservation purposes as well as convenience for both internal and external researchers. "George Brown News" and its antecedents are the only easily-digestible account of the college’s history; any other research requires working with original records, making these newsletters one of the most highly valued and accessed parts of GBC Archives' holdings.

This project requires 2 part-time YCW-compliant employees to each work a total of 227.5 hours over 13 weeks. However, YCW requires that these hours be scheduled as at least 6 weeks (consecutive or non-consecutive) of 30 or more hours per week, with no weeks of less than 15 hours per week. There is a great deal of flexibility in work hours/days, and every attempt will be made to accommodate the employee's schedule while meeting the YCW requirements. The salary is $16 per hour, with 4% in lieu of holidays. These positions will be located at GBC's Casa Loma Campus in Toronto.

Please note that applicants must meet the following YCW eligibility guidelines:

- Not be older than 30 years at the moment of hiring

- Be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident, or have refugee status in Canada. Note: Non-Canadian students or graduates holding temporary work visas or awaiting permanent status are not eligible.

Please apply no later than 5pm, November 20, 2017 through the Young Canada Works website, or email a resume and cover letter to

Please note that only applicants being offered an interview will receive a reply.
